Dallas/Fort Worth International becomes first US airport to receive EPA’s greenhouse gas award

Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas has become the first US airport to receive the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Leadership Award for Greenhouse Gas Management.

Sean Donohue, CEO, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, said, “Dallas/Fort Worth is honored to be the first airport recipient of the EPA award for Greenhouse Gas Management. We are committed to leadership in sustainability within our industry and will continue to focus on reducing our carbon footprint. This award reinforces we are on the right track in serving our airport and the North Texas region.”

EPA recognized the airport for publicly reporting and verifying organization-wide greenhouse gas inventories and publicly setting aggressive greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. This included a target of an annual 2% reduction in its direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from 2010 to 2020.

Gina McCarthy, administrator for the EPA, said, “I am proud to distinguish Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport for its outstanding actions and dedication to reduce harmful carbon pollution that leads to climate change. The airport is leading the way toward a healthy environment and demonstrates that meeting challenges of a changing climate can be achieved.”

Dallas/Fort Worth plans to achieve additional reduction goals by increasing renewable energy and alternative fuel use by integrating best available energy-efficient technology into facilities, systems, processes and operations. As of March 1, 2016, Dallas/Fort Worth expanded its proportion of renewable energy to 40%, the equivalent to installing 33 wind turbines.
